  1. I think the correct pluralization is Alexes Gonzalez, but I could be wrong

  2. You’re probably right — like ladies-in-waiting and secretaries-general and maids of honor.

  3. Just to verify, Alex S. is the the one receiving his AARP magazine. Alex is still pimping his sub .300obp and mehhh glove.

  4. You’re absolutely right! I fixed it.

  5. I would translate it, but its VERY hard to understand because of the scratchiness. It was recorded in a submarine I think! Painful to listen to. :(

  6. I’d be more comfortable with O-Cab at SS on opening day than Tyler Pastornicky, but hearing the Braves tried somehow makes me feel better. Alex, a +1 for dropping ‘synecdoche’ on us.

  7. I don’t know if it has to be this way, but the player link is to the page about both Orlando Cabreras.

  10. Only +1? That’s a +5 savings throw against dragon’s breath, my friend.

  11. I think of Bronson Arroyo and Mark Bellhorn before I think of Cabrera when it comes to the 04 Red Sox. I’m not convinced that’s what he’ll be remembered for. Maybe it’s just me, though.

  12. A liitle realism here: he won’t be remembered much at all.

  13. He replaced Nomar. I’m pretty sure every one in the north east knows where they were when they heard Nomar was traded (I was playing the guitar at my mom’s house). He’s absolutely going to remember. Hell, even my mom knows who matt murton from that trade.

  14. I don’t live in the Northeast so I’m not gonna pretend the 2004 World Series was more important than others. I had forgotten Cabrera was on that team. I’ll remember him for being a part of those early 2000s Expos teams when Vlad the Impaler and Jose Vidro were in their primes.

  15. Agreed. I remember where I was, too. Doing the nasty with Nomar’s wife. It was good times.
